Hmmm…What to Cook Today?!?!?!
So the other day I told you that I had made my own batch of Greek yogurt, so now that I had all of that yogurt, what should I make for dinner? I could make fatteh, but my husband said he wasn’t in the mood for it, for whatever that means LOL. Â So I decided to make Kefta bi Tahini, which is pretty much bakedÂ ground beef with potatoes and a tahini sauce, my husband calls this one of my Go-To recipes. Â I have a small arsenal of recipes that I Go-To when I don’t know what to cook and I’m limited on time. Â This recipe is easy and fast! Â First I mixed my ground beef and formed it into finger size patties.
I threw the beef patties into a casserole dish and into the oven. Next I sliced up my potatoes and tossed them with a little bit of olive oil and salt and threw those in the oven.
Now both my potatoes and beef were done, so I added the potatoes to the casserole dish.
Now it’s time for the tahini sauce. Â I love tahini sauce because if you like lots of garlic you can add more, if you like lots of lemon you can add more of that. Â This is were the yogurt comes in, it’s the base for the tahini sauce for this dish. Â But make sure to add water to the sauce because it will definitely thicken when you bake it.
I poured the sauce over the beef and potatoes and threw that into the oven. Â While that was baking, I toasted some pine nuts in a little butter and I made my rice on the side. Â When the casserole was done, I just sprinkled the pine nuts and butter over the top and voila! A beautiful and hearty dinner in under 30 minutes, and not to mention that my daughter loves this dish too!
Now most of the time when I make this dish I like to use half ground lamb and half ground beef, but seeing that I only had ground beef on hand, I just used what I had. Â This is a quick and easy recipe and it great for a weekday dinner when there’s little time to prepare dinner.
